Country colour

A plein air piece. I paint so many small dailies that sometimes I feel cramped up and then I know it's time to get outside and paint something a little bigger. My goal once autumn hits is to get some large pieces going again. Anyway, this was painted on Sydenham Road in Dundas. A warm, summer evening. The fields were just glowing!

It's so beautiful Kim. Everything you paint is :) I love that tree on the side, it's isolated but it doesn't look lonely, maybe it's all the great colors you have. The red and green looks amazing together!

I can't wait for fall to get here! Of course I'll be changing my mind once my kids start getting sick every other week. :)

Wow! You are so ambitious to paint such a big piece plein air! You make me want to try a large painting. Thanks for the inspiration!

I have been painting more lately but I feel as though I am stuck in a rut! I need some inspiration, haha!

This is beautiful! And you were in my neighborhood! I wonder if you were the person my husband saw while walking the dog. I have often wanted to get up there to paint. Soon...

I love Autumn (soon to approach us here in the UK) for that very reason - those beautiful colours! This painting is gorgeous :0)
